Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Crafty Boots Challenges Design Team Day Swaps


Regular readers of my blog will know that all week I have been talking about the Crafty Boots Challenges Design Team Meeting and the Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) I made to swap with the rest of the team.

I thought you might like to see the fabulous swaps I received in return, there are so many talented ladies in this group.

I shall always treasure these items and I have decided to keep them in the notebook I made at this meeting, as a memento of this fantastic day.



  1. How lucky are you - what a great collection to have and what a talented bunch you all are! Sounds like a brilliant day.
